Overview

Melbourne Museum is an iconic, postmodern building perched on the edge of the city. Surrounded by 64 acres of English oaks, plane trees and Moreton Bay figs, the building cuts a sculptural figure opposite the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building.

With eight main galleries and temporary exhibition spaces, Melbourne Museum is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere - so there are plenty of spaces to choose from for every occasion. From the soaring Main Foyer to the secluded North Terrace, the spaces can be transformed to cater for events of all sizes. While the dedicated theatre and Treetops setting provide beautiful blank canvas options, the museum’s many collections and galleries open up interesting possibilities. Cocktails with a blue whale skeleton? Dinner beside a 25-metre-tall forest? A PowerPoint presentation with Phar Lap? Our exclusive caterer, Restaurant Associates, will provide a memorable culinary experience.

If you’re planning an unforgettable event, let your imagination take the lead at Melbourne Museum.
